Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
If the conviction was 5 years ago then there is no capacity to apply for a restraining order now.
In any event, if he is in France there is no jurisdiction.
That would still not prevent family court applications for contact with children though.
You could apply to the civil courts but unless there is recent contact otherwise than through legitimate means like the family court, it wouldn't be granted.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Contact for a non legitimate reason. Not necessarily abusive.
